The Wyoming route begins at the Wyoming/ Colorado state line at Baggs, Wyoming (near Muddy Mountain) and is a multi-day trip on many unpaved, bumpy, hole filled, tree covered, water crossing backcountry roads and ends at the Wyoming / Montana state line.

The documentary follows the group from start to finish, showing many of the beautiful and magnificent sights that the center of Wyoming has to offer.

 

That includes spots in Central Wyoming like:

  • Beaver Rim
  • Atlantic City
  • South Pass City
  • Wind River Range
  • Lander
  • Hudson
  • Shoshoni
  • Ten Sleep
  • Woodchuck pass

Watching the documentary was great. Seeing areas of Wyoming that you're familiar with, but from a view that you've more than likely not seen before. This journey was fun to watch and you can actually follow the exact route and go on the adventure yourself.

The documentary is One Hour and Twenty Four minutes long, but that time flies by.
